Bill says he felt her presence in a calm feeling at 10:30am, and wanted everyone to know that he appreciates their prayers, and knows, as Christ told the repentant thief on the cross, “I tell you, today you will be in paradise with me,” that Jackie too is with Christ in peace.
We all feel, however, the earthly loss of our dear friend, and are comforted in the knowledge that she is in heaven.
Please continue to pray for Bill and his children, Jacob, Eli, Bella and Nemo, that they would feel the strength and love of Christ moreso now than ever.
And thank you all for your love and concern. You are appreciated more than words can express.
“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going.” (John 14:1-4)
